Okay, so on the "Introduce yourself" thread, my sister said she was like the color orange. Jan said that it would be cool to find out what color we all are. Well today's your lucky day Jan! Because in one of my classes today, we all had to do an excersise to find out what color we are! So the attached file explains everything. Then you can put what color you are in the poll and then discuss your thoughts here. Later, when there are a few posts here, I will write up what it means to be your color and how to talk to people and connect with people of different colors and so forth. So have fun!
(Sorry about that. And please don't vote on your favorite color, you need to take the quiz before putting in a vote. Okay, so if the word document doesn't work for you, then skip the pictures part, cause it would take WAY too long for me to upload the pictures)
Instructions: Look at the pictures and decide which seems most appealing to you. Put a 4 by the one you like the most, and a 1 by the worst, (2 by second least and 3 by second best) Then do the same with the reading. Remember to put 4 as best, and 1 as worst. Then answer the questions the same way. 4 by the best answer, and you get the drill. Then add up your “a”s and “b”s and so forth. Then you will score everything in the box provided.

Hehe, ok, so . . . when I first saw the survey just mentioning the colors themselves, I figured that I might be more of a green or blue for some reason. I guess I was right . . . ? lol I got more c's than anything, but I also got some possible b's (It was hard to decide.), and one possible d.
Bringing this back up because I'm a personality nerd.
Ahh, this looks a LOT like Keirsey/MBTI! I *think* it matches up kind of like this:
Blue = NF Idealists Gold = SJ Guardians Green = NT Rationals Orange = SP Artisans
It's interesting, because I'm apparently Green but very close to being Blue with a hint of Gold...which basically sums me up on the MBTI (technically an NF/Blue, but on the borderline of being an NT/Green). Eeentewesting. I also found another Colour test like this one here (but it requires your email, apparently... ): www.truecolorscareer.com/quiz.asp
Thanks for sharing this, Jessie! I'm always on the look out for new personality tests.
Catherine: or really whatever name you want.
